 Latest Eagles Player Notes
Apr 20 2018 - Nick Foles
  QB Nick Foles, who led the Philadelphia Eagles to a victory over the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl, has agreed to a revised contract, the NFL Network reported on Friday. The new deal for the Super Bowl MVP includes an upgraded deal for the 2018 season and a mutual option for 2019, according to the report. Terms were not available, but reportedly Foles will receive a $2-million signing bonus. Foles was due to become a restricted free agent after this season and there was speculation that he would be part of a trade on draft day, with the Eagles asking for at least a No. 1 pick. Foles, who was due to make $7 million in the final season of a two-year contract, also will make several millions more in incentives if he becomes the starter and hits various statistical benchmarks.

Wentz said Tuesday that he does not have a definitive timetable for his rehab but "the goal" remains to be under center for Week 1, according to NJ.com. "I feel good about where I'm at and I'm trying to stay the course," Wentz said at a media briefing. "I feel very good. I started the running progression. Howeverm many weeks ago I was throwing. Just to start being able to do all of those things is a good sign."


Apr 8 2018 - Carson Wentz
  QB Carson Wentz said he doesn't plan to change his playing style once he returns from his ACL injury. The headstrong Wentz, however, will hear a familiar voice bidding to change his stance, courtesy of coach Doug Pederson. "I'm going to sit down and talk to him," Pederson said, via Philly.com. "Longevity is everything in this business. Learn from the best. Learn from Tom Brady, who got hurt early in his career. And learn from guys that have done that and yet still went on to have great careers and long careers."


Apr 7 2018 - Michael Bennett
  DE Michael Bennett's attorney said the felony charge against his client is "ludicrous." Bennett is accused of pushing and injuring an elderly, disabled woman at last year's Super Bowl in Houston. "There was no fighting, there was no pushing," Bennett's attorney Rusty Hardin told NJ.com. "The entire thing is ludicrous. That's what I think we'll find when it's all over."


Apr 4 2018 - Richard Rodgers
  TE Richard Rodgers signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed for the 26-year-old Rodgers, who spent his first four seasons with the Green Bay Packers. A third-round draft pick of the Packers in 2014, Rodgers is coming off his worst season. He started only one of 15 games and had a career-low 12 receptions for 160 yards and a touchdown.

Mar 26 2018 - Chris Long
  DE Chris Long is returning to the Philadelphia Eagles after spending part of the offseason contemplating retirement. At the NFL's owners meeting in Orlando, Fla.

Bennett was expected to post bail and be released. Bennett attended the game at NRG Stadium in Houston in February 2017 an attempted to get onto the field immediately after the game to celebrate with his brother, Martellus Bennett, a tight end for the victorious New England Patriots at the time.Prosecutors allege Bennett forced his way through security and pushed a 66-year-old woman in a wheelchair who was a stadium employee.


Mar 25 2018 - Nick Foles
  QB Nick Foles remains one of the most intriguing quarterbacks who could be on the move, but he also remains with the Philadelphia Eagles. Foles, who went from backup to late-season hero when Carson Wentz suffered a torn ACL, is under contract in 2018 for a salary cap hit of $7.6 million. In a busy offseason for quarterback moves, that would be a team-friendly contract ... if the price was right in a trade. The Eagles might not be in any hurry to trade Foles, given Wentz's uncertain status for the start of the season, and coach Doug Pederson told the NFL Network the team hadn't fielded any interesting offers. "We did not," Pederson said. "Nothing too crazy. It had to be the right deal for us to do that. But there wasn't anything coming down our way for Nick."


Mar 24 2018 - Michael Bennett
  DE Michael Bennett will surrender to authorities on Monday when he returns to the continental United States, attorney Rusty Hardin told the Philadelphia Inquirer. A Texas grand jury on Friday indicted Bennett on a felony charge of injury to the elderly related to an incident at NRG Stadium following Super Bowl LI, according to the office of the district attorney of Harris County, Texas. Bennett was attending Super Bowl LI to watch his brother, Martellus, who was then a member of the New England Patriots. The Patriots rallied from a 25-point deficit to defeat the Atlanta Falcons.

Mar 23 2018 - Malcolm Jenkins
  S Malcolm Jenkins of the Eagles underwent surgery to repair ligaments in his left thumb, NFL Network reported on Friday.

Last season, Jenkins had two interceptions, eight passes defensed and 69 tackles while being named to the Pro Bowl for the second time.

Mar 22 2018 - Chris Long
  DE Chris Long is considering retirement, but a few factors suggest he will return for the 2018 season.

Mar 21 2018 - Chris Long
  DE Chris Long has a new contract offere from the Eagles, but remains unsure about returning for the 2018 season. Long will turn 33 next week and is considering retirement. The Eagles would increase his salary from $1 million in base pay to nearly $4 million in guaranteed money, Mike Silver of NFL Network reported. The new deal would take Long through the 2019 season.


Mar 20 2018 - Michael Bennett
  DE Michael Bennett already has called his shot before officially suiting up with the Philadelphia Eagles. Bennett was acquired from the Seattle Seahawks along with a seventh-round draft pick for a fifth-round selection and wide receiver Marcus Johnson in a deal that was announced shortly after the beginning of the new league year. While the trade needed time to become official, Bennett didn't wait long to put others on notice. "I know Eli Manning (of the New York Giants) is probably watching this and thinking ... yes, I'm coming. I know Dak (Prescott, of the Dallas Cowboys) is watching this like, 'Yeah, he's coming.' Yeah, I am," Bennett said on Monday. "And Alex Smith (of the Washington Redskins) he knows he can't run from me. I told him in the Pro Bowl. It's definitely going to be a great season, and it's going to be fun to be out here and be able to chase quarterbacks."


Mar 19 2018 - Carson Wentz
  QB Carson Wentz gave the Philadelphia Eagles some encouragement when he made throws inside the team's practice facility in a video posted to his social media account. Wentz, who is rehabbing from a torn ACL and LCL, posted 12-second clip on his Instagram page. The video is a montage of him dropping back to pass four times while he wears a brace on his left knee.


Mar 14 2018 - Nigel Bradham
  LB Nigel Bradham agreed to terms on a five-year contract, the team announced Wednesday. Financial terms were not disclosed but multiple outlets reported that the deal was for $40 million.

"Keeping him here was a priority of ours and we are looking forward to his future here in Philadelphia."


Mar 14 2018 - Brent Celek
  TE Brent Celek was released by Philadelphia. Celek was the longest tenured player on the Eagles, who cleared $4 million from their salary cap with the move.


Mar 14 2018 - Corey Nelson
  LB Corey Nelson was signed to a one-year contract by Philadelphia.


Mar 9 2018 - Chris Long
  DE Chris Long,, who has played on winning Super Bowl teams with the Eagles and New England Patriots the last two seasons, said he is unsure about returning for an 11th NFL season. "I don't know yet," the 32-year-old Long told SB Nation. "I'm working something out right now. At 32, you have limited time left to play the game you love, so the role has to be exactly right for me. I can still play at a high level, and I'm hungry to play, but every player my age has to weigh how they want to go out. "The 25-year-old me would tell the 32-year-old me to take the two rings and go start the next chapter in life, but it's never simple when you still have gas left in the tank. We'll have to see what shakes out. So short answer, I have no idea. I love Philly, though. The city would make it hard to walk away."


Mar 7 2018 - Marcus Johnson
  WR Marcus Johnson was acquired by the Seattle Seahawks along with a fifth-round draft choice in a trade that sent defensive end Michael Bennett and a seventh-round draft pick to Philadelphia, multiple outlets reported on Wednesday.

Mar 7 2018 - Michael Bennett
  DE Michael Bennett was acquired by the Philadelphia Eagles along with a seventh-round draft pick from the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for wide receiver Marcus Johnson and a seventh-round pick, multiple outlets reported on Wednesday. The move cannot become official until the new league year begins on March 14. Bennett was owed a $3 million roster bonus had he been with the Seahawks on March 18. By trading him, the Seahawks will save $2.2 million against the salary cap. The 32-year-old Bennett has battled nagging injuries, including foot and knee issues, despite making the Pro Bowl the past three seasons.


Mar 6 2018 - Brent Celek
  TE Brent Celek wants to play one more season. Squashing any thoughts that he might retire after the Eagles won a Super Bowl championship in February, Celek told Philly.com that he plans to play a 12th season. "Yeah I wanna play," Celek wrote in a text message to staff writer Jeff McLane. The 33-year-old Celek, who is the backup to Zach Ertz, appeared in all 16 games last season but had only 13 receptions for 130 yards -- both career lows. With a salary of $4 million, it's likely Celek would have to agree to a cut in pay to remain with Philadelphia.


Mar 4 2018 - Michael Bennett
  DT Michael Bennett is being shopped by the Seahawks and one potential buyer could be the Atlanta Falcons. ESPN.com reported Sunday that the Falcons are interested in Bennett but that a trade is not imminent. The Seahawks revealed earlier this week that Bennett was on the market and the team was hoping to get something in return for him. Bennett's health and contract status could be deterrents. He has battled nagging injuries, including foot and knee issues, despite making the Pro Bowl the past three seasons. In the three years remaining on Bennett's contract, he is scheduled to receive compensation that would result in cap hits of $8.275 million in 2019 and $10.225 million in 2020. The Seahawks had considered releasing Bennett, but the ESPN report indicated that Seattle now wants to attempt to get something in return -- possibly later-round draft picks -- for the 32-year-old veteran. Seattle has just one pick in the first three rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft


Mar 1 2018 - Michael Bennett
  DE Michael Bennett is being offered in a possible trade by the Seahawks, according to ESPN. The 32-year-old Bennett has made the Pro Bowl in each of the past three seasons and is coming off an 8.5-sack campaign despite a toe injury. "I haven't talked to Mike in a while now," said head coach Pete Carroll, per the News-Tribune of Tacoma, "but it's the time of year, conversations going in all directions." Bennett told the newspaper in January that he didn't expect to return to Seattle despite having three years remaining on his contract.


Feb 22 2018 - Carson Wentz
  QB Carson Wentz would have led the Philadelphia Eagles to a victory in Super Bowl LII and been named the game's MVP had he not been injured, coach Doug Pederson said. "Listen, Carson Wentz was the MVP talk of the league last year," Pederson said on The Rich Eisen Show on Wednesday. "And I truly believe if he's healthy, I still feel strongly that we would probably (be) in the Super Bowl and win the Super Bowl with Carson, and he's the MVP. That's just the way he played last year. He's a big reason -- he's not the only reason -- but he's a big reason why we were, I believe, 11-2 at the time, playing the Rams, and won the NFC East. For me, being a former quarterback to have two guys and really three guys, you throw (Nate Sudfeld) in there, but you're talking about Nick (Foles) and Carson who you just don't bat an eye with either one of these guys. The way they prepare, the way they study, their demeanor on the field, their leadership styles. It's a blessing to have two veteran guys like that and now have a Super Bowl MVP as your backup."


Feb 21 2018 - Alshon Jeffery
  WR Alshon Jeffery underwent surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff on Wednesday after playing in all 16 regular-season games and three playoff contests last season, according to a report. "WR Alshon Jeffery had successful surgery this morning on a torn rotator cuff, sources say," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported on Twitter. "He suffered it in training camp and played through it, somehow, on the way to a Super Bowl." Jeffery reeled in 57 receptions for 789 yards and nine touchdowns during the regular season. He added 12 catches for 219 yards and three scores in the playoffs as the Eagles went on to win their first Super Bowl title in franchise history.


Feb 20 2018 - Winston Craig
  DT Winston Craig was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles, the team announced Tuesday. Craig initially signed with the Eagles in 2017 as an undrafted free agent out of Richmond but was waived by the team during the preseason. The 6-foot-4, 290-pound Craig was signed to the team's practice squad on Dec. 8 and released on Jan. 9.


Feb 17 2018 - Stefen Wisniewski
  G Stefen Wisniewski was given a $250,000 bonus by the Eagles for the 2018 season after he narrowly missed out on an incentive for the same amount in 2017, according to a report. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported the Eagles' decision, and noted that their generosity comes at a cost as they lost out on $125,000 in cap space. Wisniewski, who took over the starting job of Isaac Seumalo, just missed an incentive based on playing time this past season. He appeared in 14 regular-season games and worked through an ankle injury in all three of the Eagles' postseason contests. The 28-year-old made $775,000 in base salary and $583,333 with a signing bonus last season.


Feb 17 2018 - Lane Johnson
  OT Lane Johnson stood by his comments of calling the New England Patriots a "fear-based organization" during a return appearance on Barstool Sports' "Pardon My Take" podcast. "Here's the whole deal," Johnson said. "I think a lot of guys just want to be happy playing football. ... The Patriots obviously won five Super Bowls, so it's the Patriot Way to win the Super Bowl. Does that mean that everybody has to act the same way? Do the same thing? Is that necessarily the guidelines to win the Super Bowl?" In his initial interview, Johnson ruffled a lot of feathers by saying that he'd "much rather have fun and win a Super Bowl than be miserable and win five Super Bowls."


Feb 16 2018 - Nick Foles
  QB Nick Foles said he has not heard from Tom Brady since the Super Bowl. "I haven't heard from him yet," Foles said Thursday in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! "I know he's busy. I know he's got a lot going on." Brady failed to shake Foles' hand following the Eagles' 41-33 victory in Super Bowl LII on Feb. 4. The latter, who was named the game's MVP, attributed the lack of the customary postgame gesture to the magnitude of the moment.


Feb 16 2018 - Brandon Graham
  DE Brandon Graham is going on the offensive after making the key defensive play in Super Bowl LII. The Philadelphia Eagles defensive end wants a new contract, and he wasn't shy about asking for it. Graham is entering the final season of a four-year deal that will pay him a base salary of $7 million in 2018. "For me, it's all about getting as much as you can while you can play, because when it's over, it's over," Graham told NBC Sports Philadelphia's Quick Slants on Wednesday. "I know Howie (Roseman, executive vice president of football operations) and those guys, if they want me here, they're going to make sure that they get me here. For me, I want to be here. Everybody knows I want to be here. They see the passion I have and I'm happy to be able to bring the trophy back to Philly. Now, it's just all about just making sense, just getting me protected for the future. Because obviously I want to retire here and I know I'm going to retire here because I've been here a long time. I would love to retire here. It's all on what they want to do. I'm just going to embrace it, whatever it is."


Feb 14 2018 - Nick Foles
  QB Nick Foles had seen plenty of successes as he guided his team to a victory in Super Bowl LII. Despite his triumphs, Foles elected to deliver a message on failure during his appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Tuesday. "As athletes, we have an opportunity to speak about it, because athletes, we try to be perfect, and we're not," the Super Bowl MVP said. "We fail just like anyone else. We have issues just like everyone else. We have life. Life happens. It's OK to share those things because I think that's what makes us strong is overcoming those failures."


Feb 14 2018 - Carson Wentz
  QB Carson Wentz has penciled in his return for the season opener and is adamant that he won't change how he plays after tearing the ACL and LCL in his left knee. "That is definitely my goal," Wentz said during a Tuesday radio appearance on Sports Radio 94WIP, via NJ.com. "Timetables and all those things are always such a fluid thing. Obviously can't come out and make a declaration on anything, but my goal is to be playing in Week 1."


Feb 10 2018 - Billy Brown
  TE Billy Brown signed a contract, the team announced. Brown spent the 2017 season on the team's practice squad after reeling in eight receptions for 51 yards during the preseason. The 6-foot-4, 241-pound Brown joins fellow tight ends Zach Ertz, Brent Celek, Trey Burton and Joshua Perkins on the roster. While Ertz is the starter, Celek's future is in question with a $5 million cap hit and Burton is a free agent. Perkins was signed to a futures deal in January.


Feb 10 2018 - Sidney Jones
  DB Sidney Jones fumbled his phone during the team's Super Bowl parade on Thursday. Jones took to social media at 4:12 p.m. ET and announced he lost his phone. The 21-year-old posted that it was found 17 minutes later, as the group of 10 fans who discovered the lost phone took a photo with it and posted it to Jones' Instagram page. Jones rewarded the fans with a group photo of his own, thus adding to the highlights of a memorable day in the City of Brotherly Love.


Feb 6 2018 - Jay Ajayi
  RB Jay Ajayi let his former coach know he was thinking of him after the Philadelphia Eagles won Super Bowl LII. Ajayi posted a photo to his Instagram account on Monday that showed him kissing the Lombardi Trophy on the heels of the Eagles' 41-33 win over the New England Patriots. Nothing wrong there, but the caption that accompanied the photo took a not-so-subtle jab at Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase. "THEY may have tried to discredit you, discount you, throw dirt on your name...none of it matters now," Ajayi wrote. "LEGACIES LAST FOREVER. funny how they were GASsEd over journalistic...look at me now. ONLY GOD" The "GASsEd" reference isn't exactly subtle.


Feb 6 2018 - Chris Long
  DE Chris Long, safety Malcolm Jenkins and wide receiver Torrey Smith reportedly are among a number of players on the Philadelphia Eagles that are planning to boycott any potential congratulatory trip to the White House. Long, who skipped the post-Super Bowl trip last season as a member of the Patriots, hasn't softened his stance. "No," Long said during the Pardon My Take Podcast. "I'm not going to the White House. Are you kidding me?"


Feb 6 2018 - Malcolm Jenkins
  S Malcolm Jenkins, defensive end Chris Long and wide receiver Torrey Smith reportedly are among a number of players on the Philadelphia Eagles that are planning to boycott any potential congratulatory trip to the White House. Jenkins said he'd skip the trip to see Trump during an interview on CNN Monday, and he offered the following reason as to why: "My message has been clear all year. I'm about creating positive change in the communities that I come from, whether it be Philadelphia, New Jersey, Ohio, Louisiana, or this entire country," Jenkins said. "I want to see changes in our criminal justice system. I want to see us push for economic and educational advancement in communities of color and low-income communities."


Feb 5 2018 - Nigel Bradham
  LB Nigel Bradham, who was one of the Eagles' best defensive players this season, will be a free agent. He figures to be looking for a significant pay bump.


Feb 5 2018 - Jason Peters
  LT Jason Peters, the 36-year-old nine-time Pro Bowler who missed most of the season with an ACL tear, said he wants to play again next season. Eagles head coach Doug Pederson has said he thinks Peters has at least a couple of more good years left. But he likely would have to agree to a restructured contract to stay with the Eagles. He has a $10 million cap number next year.


Feb 5 2018 - Carson Wentz
  QB Carson Wentz has said he fullY expects to be ready to play by Week 1 of the 2018 season. A team medical source agreed with that timeline.

Feb 5 2018 - Zach Ertz
  TE Zach Ertz had seven receptions for 67 yards, and five were good for first downs with four on third down and one on fourth down. They led to three touchdowns, with three coming on the possession that put the Eagles ahead 38-33 with 2:21 to play in the game. In that drive, he had a 7-yard reception on third-and-6, a 2-yard catch on fourth-and-1, and then an 11-yard touchdown on third-and-7. Often aggressive head coach Doug Pederson opted to go for the first down on fourth down with the Eagles on their 45-yard line and 5:39 remaining in the game. Ertz said he hopes to get the ball in important situations. He said, "I want to get the ball whenever the situation calls for it. We have a lot of talented guys on this football team. They've done an amazing job building this roster. When the situation calls for it, they trusted me. That's all I can ask."


Feb 5 2018 - Brandon Graham
  DE Brandon Graham came up with the only sack of the Super Bowl, forcing the game-saving fumble that was recovered by DE Derek Barnett at the 31-yard line. Said Graham, "I knew I had a one-on-one with the guard (Joe Thuney). I knew he liked to be aggressive, so I tried to act like I was pulling. I snatched it right off and Tom Brady's arm was right there and I went for the ball."


Feb 5 2018 - Nick Foles
  QB Nick Foles continued his magical playoff run by being named the MVP for Super Bowl LII on Sunday after leading the Philadelphia Eagles to a 41-33 win over the New England Patriots at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Foles led the Eagles to their first championship since 1960 by completing 28 of 43 passes for 373 yards and three touchdowns plus catching a touchdown pass.

"I felt calm, we have such a great group of guys. such a great coaching staff," Foles said in his on-stage interview while clutching his daughter Lilly. "We felt confident coming in and we just went out there and played football. We play this game since we were a little kid and we dreamed about this moment. Foles also threw a 34-yard TD to Alshon Jeffery in the first quarter and a 22-yard TD to Corey Clement in the third quarter to give the Eagles a 29-19 lead. Foles also caught a 1-yard pass on a trick play from Trey Burton.

Both teams released their final injury reports on Friday, but adjustments can be made due to new injuries and illnesses.
